Why are so many people spending more time looking at cats online?
People are increasingly looking for pet products online, especially on social media platforms like Instagram, where people often upload photos and videos of their pets.
In addition to online shopping, people are increasingly spending time looking for accessories or decorations to add to their homes.
Cat decor is among the most popular items on the market, with sales totaling $1.5 billion in the past year, according to a 2015 report from the National Retail Federation.
It’s also one of the most expensive items to make, according a report by consulting firm Lidl.
Consumers want a cat that looks cute and comfortable, with a personality and personality that’s not too loud, snappy or obnoxious, LidLl said.
A cat with a big belly, a short tail and a cat like you can relate to a lot of people, said John Tully, director of product research and analysis at Lidls.
“The people that want a good, warm and comfortable cat are also the people that are spending a lot time on Instagram,” Tully said.
“There’s just a lot more interest in a cat.”
Some people are choosing to keep a cat as a pet because they don’t want to buy an item that is a liability, said Kimberly Hagerty, executive director of the Pet Adoption Institute.
“I think cats are a great addition to our pets,” Hagerity said.
In an effort to get cats in homes, cat lovers are going out of their way to get them.
A study from the Center for Applied Behavior Analysis found that, of the 574 cats that were sold, 67% were kept by people in their homes and 61% were given away by others.
A small percentage of cat owners also are using social media to make it easy for people to find them, said Lauren F. Schmitt, executive vice president of the Cat Owners Association of the United States.
Many cats can be found on Instagram, which has more than 16 million followers.
It also has a large and growing group of people who follow cat owners on Instagram to see how the cat is doing.
“They don’t see that a lot,” F.S. said.
People can find a home for their cats in many different ways, from pet stores, pet stores and thrift stores to online pet-shopping services like Petsmart.
In the past decade, online pet stores have doubled their sales in the U.S., according to PetSmart.com, which tracks the popularity of pet-related stores and their products.
But they are not the only way people are looking for a pet.
“People want to see a cat in their home,” said Jennifer Loh, senior vice president for consumer insights at the American Pet Products Association.
The online pet shopping industry has expanded beyond cat-themed shopping to include toys and other products that may be used to decorate and care for animals.
In 2016, the U,S.
Census Bureau released a study showing that the number of pet owners who identified themselves as pet owners rose from 6% in 2009 to 11% in 2016.
That represents a 2.5% increase in the number.
The pet-based business is also booming.
A 2015 report by The Associated Press showed that online pet sales increased more than 9% during the same time period.
The AP also found that the market for pet accessories grew 17% during that same period, and that online cat-related sales increased 5.7%.
“You have this kind of boom, a lot like the toy market boom, where they are buying more toys,” said Hagery.
The cat-oriented craze has also created a cottage industry of cat breeders who offer cats from various breeds, including Siberian Huskies and Labrador Retrievers.
People are choosing the best of the breed, and they are often finding it on the internet, said Amy Schoen, owner of the online pet shop Cat and Dog Shop in Brooklyn, New York.
Schoen said people are also purchasing cat toys online.
“Some people are just looking for the cheapest option that doesn’t have all the bells and whistles,” Schoen explained.
“Others are looking at what looks good on Instagram and what looks nice on Pinterest.”
A number of online pet shops are partnering with shelters to stock their inventory with items that people can buy at the shelters, said Karen L. Bickley, vice president and general manager of the American Humane Society of New York, which provides shelter services to homeless pets.
Bicking up the interest in cat products online has also helped boost the popularity and sales of cat-inspired home decor items, like cat beds and cat wallpaper.
The American Humane Association has launched an online marketplace for cat beds that lets people buy and sell cat bedding and cat decor items.
And a cat-based company, Petcare Inc., in Atlanta, Georgia, is selling cat litter, cat bedsheets, cat furniture, cat
